The Resident's Spring Premiere Forces Mina to Make a Shocking Decision

During the Fox drama’s midseason premiere on Tuesday, the Chastain Park surgeon announced her plan to avoid getting sent out of the United States: She’s voluntarily going back home to Nigeria.

At the end of the hour, Mina made her choice to go home, largely swayed by the guilt she feels that her mother works in a Nigerian health care system that’s crumbling, since many of the best surgeons leave Nigeria to practice medicine in America — not unlike Mina herself.

Elsewhere in the episode, Conrad treated a pregnant patient named Tina, who was carrying the baby that Dr. Bell’s ex-stepson, Jake, and his husband planned to adopt.

But when Tina’s conservative parents learned that a gay couple would be caring for the child, they blocked the adoption, leaving Jake and Gregg heartbroken.

Meanwhile, Cain showed the teensiest, tiniest bit of vulnerability with sickle cell disease patient Rose (who knew he was capable?

), Jessica and Irving eloped in a sweet, private ceremony at an aquarium, and Devon was relieved to learn he’s not the father of Princess Nadine’s new baby, after all.
